Novel lipopeptides 84/201 and 86/450 synthesized in this laboratory stimulated antibody and delayed type hypersensitivity (DTH) response to ovalbumin in guinea pigs. Lipopeptide 86/450 also stimulated antibody and DTH responses in albino mice and enhanced nonspecifically macrophage migration index (MMI), phagocytic activity and incorporation of [14C](More)
Several novel type of lipopeptides were synthesized and evaluated for their ability to stimulate non-specific resistance againstLeishmania donovani infection. Peritoneal macrophages isolated from young male hamsters treated with muramyl dipeptide (MDP) and various synthetic lipopeptides (6 mg/kg i.p.) 7 days earlier, were cultured in vitro and challenged 24(More)
Chalcones are precursor compounds for flavonoids biosynthesis in plants, and they can also be synthesized in laboratory. Chalcones possess a broad spectrum of biological activities including antioxidative, antibacterial, anthelmintic, amoebicidal, antiulcer, antiviral, insecticidal, antiprotozoal, anticancer, cytotoxic and immunosuppressive. Aldose(More)
Five muramyl dipeptide analogues synthesized by derivatization of gamma-carboxyl of D-isoglutamine residue of MDP into alkyl amides or incorporation of lysine residue at the site via epsilon-NH2 function were evaluated for immuno-adjuvant activity. Derivatization of gamma-carboxyl of D-isoglutamine into butyl, octyl and dibutyl residues stimulated delayed(More)
Several glycopeptides structurally related to muramyl dipeptide (MDP) have been synthesized and evaluated for their ability to stimulate the non-specific resistance of hamsters againstL. donovani infection. These compounds have been named CDRI compounds. The synthetic procedure used for compounds 86/448 and 84/212 is described. MDP and its synthetic(More)
